The eve of 13 Tishrei 5643/1882. It was approaching midnight when the Rebbe Maharash got out of bed and sat down. His face shone with a special light. He wore a pocket watch which he detached from its chain. He then took a piece of paper from the table in front of him, turned the hands of the watch to 11:51 and inserted the paper to block the hands from moving. * Presented to mark the passing of the Rebbe Maharash.
The niggun that expresses the Rebbe Maharash’s approach to life is called “L’chat’chilla Aribber.” * In the biography that the Rebbe wrote about the Rebbe Maharash, he says that the source of the Rebbe Maharash’s inspiration was the book written by the mekubal R’ Emanuel Refael Chai Riki. * This is the inspiring story of a niggun and the story of a tzaddik and mekubal. * Presented for Beis Iyar, birthday of the Rebbe Maharash.
